How to Find Work in the 21st Century

Presenter: Dr. Charles Michael Austin

The working world of the 21st century is a freelance marketplace. Whatever work you do, you need to be constantly marketing yourself - because corporate loyalty is essentially dead and because you'll have many careers during your lifetime.

In this webinar, Dr. Chaz Austin will share tips on how to navigate an increasingly fluid and often intimidating landscape so that you can develop a game plan to find work you want – now and for the rest of your career. He will discuss:

- Moving your job-seeking strategy into the 21st century
- The importance of passion
- The employer's perspective
- How communication is the key to your success
- Networking
- Getting out of your own way
- And much more
